Full of rustic charm and character these pretty trulli are quietly situated close to Selva di Fasano and just a 15-minute drive from the popular beaches of Capitolo. Traditional in style, with lovely original features throughout including stone floors, aged timber beams and an old range, this endearing house is an authentic retreat for a magical stay in Puglia.

The pretty garden is a tumble of fragrant Mediterranean planting, with a well-kept lawn, inviting pool and plenty of space to relax in either sun or shade. There are productive raised beds to one side of the driveway and guests are welcome to help themselves to the colourful crops of tomatoes, courgettes, chillis and soft fruits. Alfresco dining takes place under the canopy of a handsome Tilia tree at the front of the house, but the kitchen and living areas also lead through to another dining terrace at the back of the trulli, perfect for an evening barbecue or a lunchtime snack. Here, an uninhabited trullo just beyond the garden offers a little insight into the provenance of these enchanting buildings, an inspiring taste of before-and-after as you soak up your comfortable surroundings.

The two bedrooms are simply styled and elegantly dressed with beautiful natural linens but the en-suite master deserves a particularly special mention. Entered from the shower room and with doors out onto the rear terrace, a single trullo has been cleverly converted to house its own jacuzzi, the perfect place to enjoy a little hydromassage and a glass of the very fine local wine.

There is a pizzeria a short walk from Trulli del Ricordo and the shops and restaurants of Selva di Fasano are a pleasant 20-minute stroll away. By car, you are wonderfully well-placed to explore the many impressive historical sites in Puglia, including Alberobello, the caves at Grotte di Castellana, the ancient towers of Locorotondo and the historic centres of Monopoli, Ostuni and Polignano a Mare. The glorious stretch of coastline south of Monopoli is perfect for beach-lovers and a daytrip to Lecce and the Salentine Peninsula makes a wonderful addition to any Puglian holiday.

Our choice of Italian properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
